World Tour Will Be ‘Unlike Anything We’ve Ever Done’
If their just-announced tour dates are any indication, the Jonas Brothers are not breaking up anytime soon. The pop sibling trio is rolling out an extensive, three-continent trek this summer that will take Kevin, Joe and Nick across North America, Latin America and Europe through the fall. Demi Lovato — the brothers’ fellow Disney star and labelmate, not to mention Joe’s girlfriend — will join them on the road as a special guest.
“It will be a tour unlike anything we’ve ever done before,” Nick Jonas recently told Billboard.com, when our cameras caught the brothers backstage at an NYC charity gig for TJ Martell Foundation Family Day. The middle Jonas brother, who stoked rumors about a Jonas Brothers breakup when he released his first solo album, “Who I Am,” in February, says the band’s fans have stopped worrying about its future.
“I think that it’s very clear to our fans now that things are good,” he said. We’ve had the opportunity to go and do things, dreams of ours that we’ve been able to fulfill…I think that this time has drawn us closer as brothers, made us stronger, and we’re looking forward to another great year.”
Fans who catch the Jonas Brothers on tour will hear the group’s own hits as well as songs from “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam,” the “Camp Rock” sequel premiering Sept. 3 on the Disney Channel. The movie’s soundtrack is slated for on July 27, the same day the Jonas Brothers tour kicks off in Dallas, Tex.
Tickets for the Live Nation-produced tour go on sale May 15 at livenation.com and teamjonas.com. Fans will also be able to buy tickets from a “Camp Rock” app for the iPhone and iTouch, launching May 11.
Additional dates to be announced will take the brothers to Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru, Argentina, Brazil, England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.
Until they hit the road, the brothers are staying busy shooting the next season of their Disney show, “JONAS,” and making charity appearances — including Kevin’s May 23 stint on the NBC game show “Minute to Win It,” where contestants tackle 60-second challenges for the chance to win $1 million. “I’ve been playing the games by myself at home and stuff,” laughs Kevin, who is doing the show to raise money for the Change for Children Foundation. “I practiced the blowing the cards off the bottle one for a couple of hours one night. I got pretty good at that, so hopefully that one will be in the game I play.”
